    Hi,
    Am I likely to experience any premature wear on the camcorder head by repeated and continued use of the rewind and forward facility on a Panasonic 3ccd NV GS 120 model ?
    I dont mean just winding the tape back once to the start but repeated windings back and forth to access scenes for immediate debriefs.

    Best bet is to grab all your footage in one go and then cut it down on your computer.

    Then you'll have to playback from either the camera or if you are really worried about wear and tear a standalone dv player ( expensive) or a really cheap second camera to save your other one.

    Yes I thought about that option , seen several for sale well under £200, might consider a DVD model for ease of access to scenes ( no rewinding).
